Decoding the art of growing export quality fruits with data science
By Vijay J. | 24 September 2019
Growing horticulture crops can be called as an art when it is backed up by science. When it comes to Fresh Fruits and Vegetables (FFV) agribusiness, producing and delivering export quality products, is made easier with data science using FarmERP.
Export quality agri-produce requires management of sprays within tolerable residue limits. It involves growing as per specifications like shape, size, colour, uniformity, taste, flavour as well as quantity. While achieving all of the above, business needs to keep in mind branding, sustainability, business profits and credibility in the market. Although it is a critical and precision demanding process; we have successfully decoded the art of growing export quality fruits and it is helping many FFV businesses worldwide. Here is how FarmERP has been successful in this ;
- Optimum Input Utilization:
Skilled agriculturists know that more inputs do not necessarily translate into good quality and more quantity of output. Rather, it can ruin the show. Perfect produce is the result of specific and accurate input at an appropriate time. Our extensive cultivation schedules are integrated with task calendars in such a way that the entire operation becomes easy with regular task notifications.
- Labour Efficiency & Traceability:
Export quality need additional labour intensive operations. It can include tagging, bagging, dipping, thinning of fruits and many more. With the help of FarmERP, all these operations could be tracked and made more efficient without leaving anything to human errors.
- Waste Minimization:
More complex the operations, more chances of waste. But not when FarmERP is implemented. This is because every input, labour and tasks are monitored and designed to achieve utmost precision and efficiency. It avoids over purchase or wastage due to mismanagement. Other IoT devices reduce in pre and post harvest.
- Precise Practices for Quality of Fruits:
We have special emphasis on quality parameters of exportable fruits. With known targets of quality attributes, our robust system focuses on required inputs and practices for quality fruits. It's not only based on the input output mechanism but the actual field data that gets added year after year.
- Achievement in Residue-free Produce:
This is the most crucial part when it comes to exporting of fruits. The chemical application schedule for residue free fruits is an integral part of our FarmERP export produce offering. Our residue free framework helps in growing safe fruits for human consumption through in built intelligence.
- Productivity along with Profitability:
While meeting all the qualitative and quantitative objectives; we improve the process to satisfy clients in longer run. The least cost combinations of inputs, efficient operations and minimal wastage makes the whole business profitable.
- Scalability and integration abilities:
FarmERP smart platform can be scaled up to millions of trees and acres of farmland. It could be easily integrated with legacy software systems, and smart IoT devices thus offering a single sign on experience to users.
FarmERP way of decoding an art of producing export quality fruits is being practiced successfully across continents. Data science has helped us strengthening this ERP platform to offer innovative decision making capabilities.
